Dissapointed by Scooter


I am a great fan of the German techno band called Scooter. I specially love their early albums, their style and them being constant in their approach towards their original (and simple) rhythms. Also, they perform great on live stages.

But their last album, the 2005 “Who’s got the last laugh now” really disappointed me. I couldn’t find one song which to like, not to mention a great hit.

Songs like “RAMP! The Logical Song”, “Fire”, “Weekend” and even experiments like “She’s the sun” or “Summer wine” used to impress me (and still do), but the latest album proves to be a total disappointment.

Even though they used some old tricks like the “childish voice” or the famous “dub dub dub…”, all the songs lack power, lack consistency and the old Scooter spirit.

I hope they will come up with something better soon, or else I’ll keep listening to the old tracks.

In summary…
Best thing: none on this album
Worst thing: the “Privilege to witness” track.
Overall: they get a 3 for this album and an overall 8 for their career so far.
